On the origin of the gunfire:
(4:15) “By that time I had turned around and I was looking to my rear right and up. …. I was looking at the window, without realizing it, of the School Book Depository. There have been many theories, many people have conjectured where the shots came from. From the grassy knoll. If it had come from the grassy knoll I would have been looking ahead, to the right… But I didn’t. I turned around and looked up, that was my immediate reaction on my part, and I have to say if the shots weren’t coming from there, why did I look up?”
On the reaction of Lyndon Johnson:
(12:20) “Lyndon Johnson was very cool. He said, ‘Well you know Mac, we don’t know what kind of communist conspiracy this might be.'”
On who was responsible
(15: 50) “Lee Harvey Oswald… Acting alone.”
